Students Transferring from OCC

When transferring from OCC to another institution, it is up to the receiving school which classes will be accepted and how your credits will transfer. Students should work with an OCC counselor to discuss transfer credits and academic planning to ensure they stay on track for degree completion. Students may find the Michigan Transfer Network to be a useful source of information.  In addition, transferring students are strongly encouraged to explore transfer opportunities that exist with transfer credit agreements between OCC and many four-year colleges and universities.

The following steps will guide you through the process of transferring to another institution.

STEP 1: MEET WITH A COUNSELOR

Make the most of your counseling appointment.  Students considering transfer should also review the Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA) Distribution Requirements.

Call for an appointment with a counselor at one of the campuses or set up a ZOOM meeting!

STEP 3: HAVE OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS SENT TO TRANSFERRING INSTITUTION

Complete an online Transcript Request.

For those requesting the MACRAO stamp or MTA endorsement on their transcript:

Students requesting either of these endorsements should first check their unofficial transcript online using MyOCC to see if the endorsement is already noted (found right before your history of classes).

  • If the endorsement is there, you do not need to request the endorsement again.
  • If the endorsement is not there, before you submit your transcript request, please send an email to transcripts@oaklandcc.edu requesting your eligibility to be checked. Please wait to submit your transcript request until you receive a response.
